You need:
225g (8 oz) plain flour
110g (4 oz) caster sugar
110g (4 oz) cold chopped butter
a teaspoon of water
baking sheets and trays
mixing bowl
some kind of mixer but a wooden spoon turned out to be okay!
Decorating icing!

pre heat oven to 180’c (gas mark 4) 350’F

Mix flour, sugar and butter in a processor until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. this may take 400 years.

Add the egg and a teaspoon of water and mix again until it starts to glob together into a smooth ball! You can use your hand for this near the end.

FLOUR THE SURFACE, roll out the dough to a thickness of a £1 coin or 3 ants stacked and cut out shapes!

BAKE THEM FOR 10 – 15 MINUTES – swap the shelves over half way through!

Don’t worry if they are slightly soft when they come out the oven! They will harden.

Cool on a wire rack. When the biscuits are cold, decorate!!
